In this paper we present a compiler that translates programs from an imperative higher-order language into a sequence of instructions for an abstract machine. We consider an extension of the Krivine machine for the call-by-name lambda calculus, which includes strict operators and imperative features. We show that the compiler is correct with respect to the big-step semantics of our language, both for convergent and divergent programs.
